My name is Ibrahim Siddiq, I'm an artist based in the bronx. I'm part of an organization in which we run a grass roots arts program called The FREE ART Project. We host a series of showcases, open mics and workshops that are free and open to the public. 

Since all of our events are free our program doesn't generate funds to maintain its continuity. This is where Earth's Pantry comes in. What is Earth's Pantry? It's a skin and hair care product line. At Earth's Pantry we trust in mother nature, which is why all products are homemade from organic plant based ingredients, ordered from a single source and made in small batches to maintain quality.

The Proceeds of Earth's Pantry go towards funding The FREE ART Project and other Arts and Educational programs like it. 

By supporting our campaign you will not only help launch a honest and ethical company dedicated to offering you the highest quality organic products but you will also help sustain an amazing art program for our youth. Its crucial we support the arts, especially in a time when arts programs are being cut from our schools at an alarming rate.



Budget Breakdown:


$10,000

3,500 - Bulk Ingredients to offer products at lower prices

2,000 - Packaging, Labeling to offer a more professonial look, how good a product looks is almost as important as how well it works.

2,500 - Equipment 

Kitchen Mixer 
Industrial Blender
Pyrex Bowls, Digital Scale, Mixing Spoons, Beakers & Measuring Cups, Thermometer, Molds, Etc.
Storage Containers, Mini Fridge (For Perishable Ingredients) 
$1000 - Logo & Website Design w/ Online Store 

$500 - Marketing & Promotion (Flyers, Business Cards, Etc.)

The historical backgrounds to Peekskill street names is the topic of a program to be presented on Saturday, April 11 at 2 p.m. at Peekskill Museum, 124 Union Avenue in Peekskill.

Co-authors John J. Curran and John J. Morabito will be on hand to offer
their insights from their new book THE HISTORY OF PEEKSKILL, N.Y. STREET NAMES. This program is free to museum members, and by donation to the public.

“Everyone lives on a street that has a name, and every name has a meaning” states Mr. Curran. The 110-page book features more than 200 separate street listings, with more than 100 graphics. The published results of their year-long research and formatting is available for purchase and signing at the event. A portion of the sales will benefit the Peekskill Museum.

What is Peekskill’s oldest street? How many city streets are named after Revolutionary War Individuals and U.S. presidents? How many women have inspired Peekskill street names?

For more information, call the Peekskill Museum at (914) 736-0473.  -----------
Curran is a longtime Peekskill Museum member as past President and current Trustee. He was the Peekskill City Historian for nearly 20 years, and author of several local history books. A graduate of Peekskill High School, Curran earned a B.A. Degree in history from Allegheny College. He taught English in Japan for three years. Back in the Peekskill area, he worked as a reporter and editor of the Community Current newspaper and a columnist/writer with the former The Peekskill Herald weekly paper.

Co-author John Morabito grew up in Peekskill, and served in the Army during the Vietnam War. He later studied literature and writing at City College of San Francisco. The western United States serve as settings for two of his early novels: The Lower Farm and The Upper Lake. Morabito returned to New York, married, raised three children and worked for a public utility for 29 years. He resumed his writing career after retirement in 2007. His Dogtown Days novel is a colorful rendition of one of Peekskill’s older neighborhoods.
